Proverbs 29:3-5 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth.

By justice a king brings stability to a land,
but a man who demands “contributions”[a]
demolishes it.

A man who flatters[b] his neighbor
spreads a net for his feet.

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 29:4 The Hb word for “contributions” usually refers to offerings in worship.
  2. Proverbs 29:5 Lit is smooth on
